One way is to mash on the brakes several times (of course with engine running). This depletes air and causes the compressor to build up air to its limit. Then you top your tires. Hope it works for you!
X3 on the slow. But since the normal working pressure of the air system is around 135 lbs when the governor "blows off" you will easily go to 110+ lbs.
I do it all the time.
